Lyric "Almost"
Almost
Almost, you fell in love with me

Almost, you were my bride to be

But someone new came by

And you left me here to cry

Oh how close we were, almost



Almost, I heard the church bells ring

Almost, I heard the choir sing

Well, each promise that was made

You have broken and betrayed

Oh how close we were, almost



Almost, my every dream came true

Almost, I heard you say 'I Do'

But I hear now instead

All those unkind words you said

Oh how close we were, almost

Oh how close we were, almost

Oh how close we were, almost

Roy Orbison

Roy Kelton Orbison (April 23, 1936 – December 6, 1988), nicknamed the Big O, was an American singer-songwriter and musician, known for his distinctive, impassioned voice, complex compositions and dark emotional ballads. The combination led many critics to describe his music as operatic, giving him the sobriquet "the Caruso of Rock". Between 1960 and 1964, 22 of his songs placed on the Billboard Top 40, including "Only the Lonely" (1960), "Crying" (1961), and "Oh, Pretty Woman" (1964).
